  • Conclusion: When Sigma first announced the 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM in March, our story headline (courtesy of our news editor and punmeister-in-chief) was 'A new standard?', and this has turned out to be remarkably prescient.
  • Pros: Class-leading image quality, Relatively low vignetting even at wide apertures on full frame, Reasonably fast and positive autofocus, with full-time manual override, Very good build quality
  • Cons: Large and heavy for a 50mm F1.4, Expensive

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM lens review

ePHOTOzine
6 January 2011
  • Summary: Sigma are clearly marketing this optic as a premium alternative to manufacturer's own lenses. In some respects the higher price is justified, but in others it is not. How you use the lens as well as the camera system you use will be the biggest factors in determining whether this lens is good value...
  • Pros: Excellent sharpness in the centre at most apertures, Low vignetting, 77mm filter size is the same as most professional level zooms
  • Cons: Maybe a little softer than I'd hoped at f/1.4, Heavier than any other 50mm f1.4 lens, Bigger than any other 50mm f/1.4 lens

18 June 2009
  • Conclusion: The new Sigma AF 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM is a refreshing alternative in the long-ignored standard AF lens market. The lens is fairly big and heavy due to unusually big glass elements but thanks to the design efforts it is already capable of delivering sharp images straight from f/1.4 and the resolution...
